Remember when the Patriots were involved in a scandal commonly know as ‘Spy Gate’ in 2007 when Bill Belichick (pictured) was fined $500,000 and the team had to forfeit a first-round draft pick for secretly taping coaches.
“Either teams are spying on us or scouting us,” Smith said.
The nine-year veteran says the Texans added a new defensive wrinkle this week but the Patriots ‘miraculously’ knew it was coming.
“It was just miraculous that they changed up some things that they did on offense that keyed on what we put in this week,” Smith said. “There’s no way. We have not did it ever before and they ain’t never changed it ever before so it was just kind of fishy.”
Bill Belihick proved in 2007 that his philosophy was win at any cost.
Let’s see a show of hands - who thinks that Belichick learned his lesson in 2007 and would never spy on another team again.
No one raised their a hand. We are not surprised.
Patriot head coach Bill Belichick was robbed of a win in November against the Carolina Panthers by “the call that wasn’t made” as reported here.
Was spying on the Texans his way of making back a win? Probably not but the Texans will never be convinced.
